    Has anybody accomplished this or know of any good info on the web. I found a place nearby that will sell me a JDM B16A for cheap and was wondering what version I should look for so that the install is the easiest for me. How would the OBD ver affect me with this?

    one question. WHY?
    you're putting a smaller displacement engine in there. buy the b16 head, and make an ls/vtec.

    You'd be better off sticking with the LS over getting a b16...or you could get a GSR :p

    integra's are heavy, and with a 1.6 you'll have no torque.

    go ls/vtec, or find a gsr swap.

    You have the LS bottom end already, an LSVTEC is a viable solution.

    Your 92 is OBD-1, depending on what B16 your getting, I would try and stick with OBD-1 (Square Plugs) ,OBD-0 (Round Plugs) is going to be a little more of a wireing nightmare. Nothing plugs right up other than a couple of sensors........... ;)

    It could very well be OBD0 some of the 92's were.

    the ls transmission sucks for all motor. plan ahead and piece the setup together. you'll need a cable transmission, ls/gsr bottom end, vtec head. any vtec head will work, you just need an obd1 distributor and obd1 injectors. plus, you'll need someone to put it all together.

    Wow, I didn't know that. Thanks for the update. Well, now you know what to look for........... Round plugs= OBD-0 and Square plugs= OBD-1.........

    That is correct. If your car has grey plugs for the distro it is OBD1.

    right i had a 92 teg and put a JDM B16 in it and it haulled A$$...vtec is a world of a diff. if you get a pre obd motor all you have to do is change the dist and the injectors make sure that you get the PR3 ecu and a J1 tranny some say that the YS1 is the better tranny for that car but i know the diff I know what that car is supposed to do and what it will do so you are shaving some weight with the new B16 and the car does move....I ate many a mustangs with that car and i miss it every time i see one of those apc hos so yes go with the B16 you are gaining about 40 hp with it so it is up to you good luck :worthy:

    If you want VTEC go LSVTEC. Built right it will own a teg with a B16.

    look guys, remember some facts before considering LS/V, first reliability is gone , too much R/S is bad... if the car is not going to be a daily driver then great!!! do it...if not save your hard earned money and go for a b18c/5-R or ...buy the b16a buy: sunk2 ecu, cams(your choice), gears, port polish head, match intake man..throttle body. 4-2-1 header, test pipe... 75 wet No2 syst and then post again, remember loos as much weight with out comfortabillity... :D
